There came a Wind like a Bugle —
It quivered through the Grass
And a Green Chill upon the Heat
So ominous did pass
We barred the Windows and the Doors
As from an Emerald Ghost —
The Doom’s electric Moccasin
That very instant passed —
On a strange Mob of panting Trees
And Fences fled away
And Rivers where the Houses ran
Those looked that lived — that Day —
The Bell within the steeple wild
The flying tidings told —
How much can come
And much can go,
And yet abide the World!

—Emily Dickinson (1830-1886), 1618 (Franklin)

As long as Charlie keeps playing drums, I’ll keep listening. He’s the oldest of the bunch and the only one who doesn’t dye his hair. And he’s the only one who sounds as good today as he did decades ago.

A Bomb upon the Ceiling
Is an improving thing –
It keeps the nerves progressive
Conjecture flourishing –

—Emily Dickinson (1830-1886), from 1150 (Franklin)
